Please Let Me Introduce Myself....I'm Shannon!!

Recommended Posts

Greetings All!!

Thank you so much for including me in your community. I have bookmarked it and intend to visit regularly.

A little about me. I am 45 years young. I am a mother to two amazing daughters 28 and 24. I had worked as a server then bartender for 20 years. When my youngest graduated from college two years ago it was time for me to try. I have been in school 2 years now. I'm working on a Bachelors which will be in Tourism Development and Management with a Minor in Event Planning, from Arizona State University. About 6 months ago I quit bartending I can't take it anymore.

I have freelanced found a way to bring some kinds of money in while going to school. I sell on Poshmark, I have ads on Fiverr and Thumbtack and have been sending out proposals on Upwork and Freelancer. I've ran ads on Craigslist and applied for virtual positions through Indeed. Some of these have gotten me jobs but nothing too consistent or profitable. But getting me by none the less.

I recently found a woman who has a very detailed class in becoming a VA that I am going through now. This class has me very inspired and excited but watching it alone I want to reach out to people who are doing it.

Which brings me to where I am now. I want to start being part of the community to I can ask the people doing it.

I have general office skills I know all of the Office Suites but I especially love PowerPoint. And, turns out I'm pretty good at it as well. I am wondering if there is a Niche market out there for people who create great PPT?  Are any of you specialized in that or know of people who are?

Thanks for taking the time to read my introduction. I'm gonna spend some more time poking around the page. Hope to get to know you all soon!!

Hi Shannon, welcome to VAnetworking! 

Yes I know a lot of people loathe creating powerpoints so think you could find some work there. I know I would hire someone to build them for me if I could. 

What VA course are you taking? Let us know if you have any questions. @Tawnya Sutherland just left on a cruise for Christmas so she won't be getting in touch with any new members until she is back.
